The only icing or frosting that I can think of that would give a smooth surface would be a Royal Icing or if you wanted Chocolate a Ganache.  The Royal would set up firm the ganache would be a bit softer.
Royal icing is a mixture of egg whites and powdered sugar.  I do not have an exact recipe with me but a quick search would bring up several.

When the ganache is first made it is thin so it can be used as a glaze.  I would make the ganache, allow it to set for a bit so it is just a bit thicker then dip what ever you are going to dip.  Allow the ganache to set even further then use as a frosting.  Whipping the ganache once it has firmed up a bit you will have a spreadable frosting.

I want to adapt something like a ganache to something I can dip pieces into and have the frosting set once it is dried so that it winds up being somewhat firm (not too smushable).  Any ideas?
